cron.daily
 
I have recently wrote a new script that will automate a task that one of my users had to do daily. I want write a script that will execute with cron.daily. My questions is do I simply write the cron script, and put it in the /etc/cron.daily/ directory? or do I also have to edit something else that will allow it to be executed.

Those directories are created for easy use. Every script found in that directory should be started. So all you have to do is create the script and place it there.
Do take into account that the cron script might have a different environment then when you run it as a normal user.
